Vista View has announced that they will be releasing the Saber DA-1N1-e PCIe dual tuner card this week. The Saber DA-1N1-e is a combination ATSC (digital/HDTV) tuner and ViXs chip hardware encoded analog tuner.

From the press release: Vista View introduces the Saber DA-1N1-Etm PCIe Combo tuner card. This tuner combines the best Analog tuner technology with the best Digital tuner technology. This PCIe tuner card is the almost twin sister of the Saber DA-1N1-I, introduced in mid July.

Both cards give you 2 tuners, 1 Digital and 1 Analog, on one card. On both cards the Analog portion has a high quality ViXS hardware encoder and both are Vista certified. The main difference is that the Saber DA-1N1-E has a PCIe interface and is ATX height. With this addition to the Saber line customers can choose PCIe or PCI and still have the same great quality combo tuner choices.
